The Automatons is a series of events that trigger after you gain an automaton. They appear to trigger in roughly any order.

A letter of thanks[edit | edit source]

The exact trigger for this event is unknown.

Sir, an engineer is here to see you. He has a letter to you from his team.

"My workers asked me to deliver this. They're plain people, so it reads like bad poetry, but here's the gist of it: they want to thank you, sir. The sight of this automaton working tirelessly in the inhuman cold, where previously they toiled and suffered, is something worth living for."

You only have one option:

  • I'm glad to hear that: Hope will rise slightly.

Serious accident[edit | edit source]

The exact trigger for this event is unknown.

Sir, there's been an accident! An automaton has stepped on a man, crushing his leg and crippling him for life.

People argue that the automatons should walk more slowly and carefully, even at the cost of their efficiency.

You have two options:

  • Slow down the automatons: Hope will rise. The efficiency of automatons will fall by 10%.
  • We can't afford it: Discontent will rise slightly. Automatons will remain a threat.

Note that if you chose the second option you'll have a chance to get sick (injured) workers for the remainder of the game

Stuck automaton[edit | edit source]

The exact trigger for this event is unknown.

Sir, an automaton has entangled itself hopelessly in its assigned building. We can't free it without at least partially dismantling one or the other, and that means shutting down either the automaton or the building.

You have two options:

  • Shut down the automaton: This automaton will be unable to work for the next 12 hours.
  • Shut down the workplace: The workplace will be inactive for the next 12 hours.

Automaton can't refuel[edit | edit source]

This event will trigger if you have working automatons and your generator is off.

Sir, an automaton stopped working because it was unable to recharge itself from the Generator or a Steam Hub. It has to do that twice daily. In order to make it operational again you need to turn on the Generator.

You only have one option:

  • I see
